TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) - A crash involving two motorcycles and two cars sent two men to the hospital Early Sunday morning.

It happened on Dorr St. near Linden Ln. at about 1:20 a.m. 13abc videographer Samantha Widmer witnessed the crash, which happened in front of her Jeep while she was driving to a separate report of an overnight shooting.

One motorcycle, according to Widmer, was hit by a car, causing the bike to burst into flames. A motorcycle behind the first was then hit from behind by another car that was following it.

According to a news release from the Ohio State Highway Patrol, the car that caused the initial crash was traveling in the opposite direction when it crossed over the center line and hit the first motorcycle head-on. Troopers say driver impairment was a factor.

State troopers also describe the injuries to both motorcyclists as serious. Both men were taken to the hospital.
